Coin total increasing instead of fiat amount

Hi there,

I’m quite new to MetaMask and I just purchased a coin through the Binance Smart Chain Mainnet. I just found out that for some smaller coins the fiat balance might not appear due to the coins not having a clear price on coingecko. One thing that I however find a bit weird is that instead of now having a fiat balance that increases the amount of the coin that I purchased keeps increasing. This means that I had 3200 of the coin and now I already have 3202 and it keeps going up. I think this is happening because there is no fiat balance and there has to be a way to show that my coin is increasing. What I don’t understand is how this works. Usually when I buy for example 1 ETH I keep this 1 ETH and its price keeps going up, meaning my 1 ETH increases in value. This time its only my coin total increasing, so can anyone please explain the logic behind this?

Thanks in advance! :slight_smile:

hmmm, that doesn’t make sense. If you check on, is the amount of those tokens changing in your account? is it the same amount that MetaMask shows?

Just figured out that I get a certain percentage in staking rewards, hence why it’s slowly going up. Still a little bummed out about the fact that I can’t see my fiat, but I guess I’ll just have to deal with that for the time being.

Thanks so much for your reply though, appreciate the help! :slight_smile:
